Each day check back to see all the new prizes!
How can you win? We’re going to give this away to someone at the NYC Resistor event on September 19th. If you’re going to the event you need to show up with a cool project made with a Raspberry Pi in some way. Ladyada and Becky will be pick a winner, so make sure you show up with something really cool that shows what you can do with a Pi. Looking for ideas? Check out tutorials and Pi day (Fridays) here.
If no one shows up with a great project worthy of such a bag, we’ll give it away online to one lucky person online who is posting up amazing Raspberry Pi projects that catch our attention.
Every day we’ll post up about the new items added to the bag! Today we’re adding:

You’re gonna need a bigger backpack.
My roommate and I made traffic light in our apartment controllable via a web interface and the pi. Pretty fun for parties. We also wrote a few other apps that would change the light based on tweets of the word ‘fireworks’ and based on the bass of whatever music is playing 🙂
